A wide-angle lens with Zeiss Tessar optics, this offering from Sony is compatible with both full-frame and crop-sensor cameras, where it provides a 24–52.5mm equivalent focal length. The f/4 maximum aperture has seven rounded blades that create consistent bokeh throughout the zoom range. You’ll also get steady performance and control during shallow depth of field techniques. It performs optimally in moderately low-light.
The lens is crafted from 12 elements divided into 10 groups. One advanced aspherical element, four aspherical elements, and three extra-low dispersion elements eliminate spherical and chromatic aberrations, astigmatism, field curvature, and coma. Each lens component has been treated with Zeiss T* anti-reflective coating, which handles reflections and flare and gives images Zeiss’s signature contrast, clarity, and color.
Autofocus is quick, quiet, and accurate during photo and video applications due to the linear autofocus motor and internal focus design. Sony’s Optical SteadyShot reduces camera shake, allowing you to shoot handheld or in low light without worrying about blurry images. Some Sony cameras with sensor-shift type image stabilization can be combined with the lens’s system to give you more control over bokeh.
The Sony Vario-Tessar T* FE 16-35mm f/4 ZA OSS is also dust- and moisture-sealed and has rubber control rings, so you can keep working in most weather conditions. It has a minimum focusing distance of 11.02 inches, a maximum magnification of 0.19x, and a 107° to 63° angle of view. It’s compatible with 72mm front filters.
